Fixing Water Damaged Blackberry Phone

Filed under: Uncategorized — blackbparts @ 6:09 am

What to do if you get your Blackberry phone wet accidentally.

There are several ways of fixing your water damaged BlackBerry. The first method needs to be done with caution, care, and quickly.

-First, remove all extra pieces like the battery and its cover. Then, for about 5 minutes at a time, use a blow dryer set on a low heat setting. If this is not possible, hold the phone away from the dryer about a foot to avoid risking any more damage as the heat of the dryer can ruin the fragile electronics. Be patient and wait till the next day to replace the battery and power up the phone to make sure all moisture has been dried up.

-Next method of fixing a water damaged BlackBerry is the most popular and most successful method. After the phone has been submerged in water, remove its battery. Place the BlackBerry in a bowl of uncooked rice. Be sure to cover the entire phone with rice and cover the bowl. Rice is great at absorbing moisture (just like when you cook rice – boil water and then steam the rice!). It is best to leave the phone in the rice for about a day just to be sure the water has been absorbed by the rice.

According to Hitwise an internet marketing company that tracks stats for search marketing for regular internet and mobile, shows who wants traffic to their sites should consider search terms like “free shipping” and “coupon.” Hitwise took a look at how searches for these terms tend to increase dramatically around the holidays, especially in the mobile market.

Whether you sell parts for  iPhone, Gphone, or better a Blackberry. Why not offer coupons and discounts for the holiday?


Offers in the coupon world can take many forms. Below are just a few ideas.

* Buy one, get one free Blackberry trackball ring Chrome, or Blackberry Curve Parts.
* Cross-sell/up-sell where consumers are rewarded with a cost-saving offer for extending a purchase to additional products.
* Trial, free, or highly discounted offers to incent first time or repeat purchase.

Delivery Method(s)

* Search generated: Many consumers in the purchase research process will search phrases such as “Blackberry parts coupons” or “Blackberry Pearl parts”; the terms “coupon” and “coupons” alone generated over 36 million searches on Google in June.
* Short code/number: Consumers input a short code/number and then receive an e-mail coupon or link to offer details.
* Application: Device-specific applications that provide consumers with coupons and offers based on geography and product/service category.
* E-mail: Coupons “pushed” to consumers based on user-determined opt-in category requests for offers.
* Other media: Outdoor, print, and broadcast messages embedded with links or short code/numbers to receive coupon/offers.

Coupons are a great method for connecting online and mobile search behavior to offline and walk-in purchases. Redemption and clearing methods that rely on UPC (Uniform Code Council) codes are ideal for collecting success metrics.

As local search continues to grow it shows how consumers shape purchase decisions online and via mobile devices, smart marketers will leverage marketing techniques to grow market share in an increasingly complex media environment. Mobile coupons are a great way to influence purchasers at point of purchase and enable marketers to bridge online/mobile search behavior usage to purchase.

Best Ways To Clean Blackberry Trackball

Filed under: Uncategorized — blackbparts @ 6:14 pm

For those that have Blackberry cell phones, they work very nice.  However, one problem is sometimes the trackball gets a little dirty with lint and dirt that you can’t see.  This screws up with the cursor movement.  Here are some simple steps to clean your Blackberry trackball

The silver ring which covers the trackball can easily be removed if you use a small screwdriver to lift it at the outer side of the ring. Be careful here! Like you should be during the whole process as all parts have very small plastic nipple which can break very easy.

When the silver plastic ring is removed you will see the inner trackball component which can be removed completely. Before doing this you should carefully remove the silver metal ring that holds the trackball component in its position. The trackball component itself can also be carved. For every direction the ball can roll to you’ll find a sensor wheel. Those wheels are mostly carrying some gunk you should clean them from.

Once this is done put everything back together to the place the pieces came from and secure the trackball with the silver plastic ring you removed in the first step. Your BlackBerry’s trackball should be back working now.
